Back in 2006, Disney acquired Pixar, making films like Toy Story, The Incredibles, and Monsters Inc. property of the larger company. Since then, Pixar’s content grew, creating sequels for their original movies, like Incredibles 2 and Finding Dory. Additionally, the studio produced Academy Award-winning films like Inside Out, Ratatouille, and Coco.

Thanks to Disney Plus, a new television series, entitled Monsters At Work, expands on the stories of Monsters Inc. and Monsters University. Unfortunately for Netflix subscribers, Pixar’s 2019 release, Toy Story 4, will most likely head straight for Disney Plus.

Star Wars

Thanks to Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm, upcoming films like Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker may be available for streaming on the company’s subscription service. Disney is also creating television shows based in the Star Wars Universe. One of which is entitled The Mandalorian, a series written and produced by Jon Favreau.

Because Disney acquired Lucasfilm, and that studio created the Indiana Jones franchise, movies like Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark will most likely leave Netflix within the upcoming year.
